I have VW golf mk7 with halogen headlights i want to change them with helix headlights but im not sure about that because i read some comments that they dont work after some months properly
And the gist of that story is Osram's shit is better than Helix shit.Helix is pretty decent but if you’re at all concerned about overall build quality, and are willing to pony up an extra $300/400, Osram produces plug and play headlight upgrades for halogen equipped MK7s that are very, very high quality. Osram is an OEM, where Helix is a small aftermarket company that doesn’t do its own manufacturing in-house, they have a supplier in China. Osram makes their own shit.
IIRC you can get Ed's reps (produced by Vacar) on AliExpress or similar for a decent price, it's a shame they're no longer offering them or they'd be my recommendation 100%. Only issue you MAY run into is if you have inspections, you might not be able to pass with them due to them not being DOT stamped, but that's about it. If you've got a friend who can inspect, that's the way to go -- the light output is significantly improved over the stock halogens, and they're not terribly expensive. They're also available in GTI or R flavor, depending on your opinion of the red stripe. I've considered making modifications to my vehicle all around to accommodate the necessity for an amber 'corner light' (integrated into the OEM lights) per inspection, which would likely allow me to pass inspection without issue.My understanding is that the inner light is not used. The outer light does both low and high beams.
Also, separate power needs to be run from the battery or other source.
What is a good price for the Mk7.5 version delivered to US and from which site?
